Lead Pastor
Gateway Church, North Austin Campus

Austin, Texas
Church Description *
Gateway’s mission is to help unchurched people become a unified community of growing, multiplying Christ followers.

Gateway Church has three locations across beautiful Austin and one in Branson, MO. Gateway’s focus is highly missional in an unchurched setting. Austin is a post-modern, post-Christian, diverse culture and is on the front lines reaching people far from God. If you’re a fan of ACL, SXSW, year-round sunshine, great Tex-Mex and not ever wearing a tie again, then you’ll get Gateway. It’s a church where no perfect people are allowed, and Gateway works hard to create a non-threatening, culturally relevant, come-as-you-are culture that welcomes anyone and everyone to seek out the claims of Christ and of faith.
